Subject: RE: Is kytrad okay? Jean Ritchie hospitalized
FYI

"Nursing home" is a generic term that can range from full-on rehab to any level of care. When someone is discharged to a care facility, it just means that a patient's situation is no longer considered acute and that longer-term strategies are being implemented in a less expensive facility with different staffing that suits the situation better.

In other words, it's usually good news to be discharged in that direction.

I share the Christmas wishes for the family and I know they will do Jean proud.
